Demonstrating Impact: How Cognitive Science Shapes Everyday Life

April 22, 2019 3212

Can cognitive science help detect cancer? What about improve airport security? Demonstrating impact is a constant conversation within the social and behavioral science community, one the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences (FABBS) and its constituent member organizations often engage with.

In their new video series entitled “Science in the District: Cognitive Psychology in the Real World,” FABBS explores different ways in which cognitive science is at play in the world, particularly to keep individuals safe and healthy. The videos, five in total, take on the critical job of displaying the impact social sciences, in this case cognitive psych, can have on everyday life.

FABBS promotes human potential and well-being by advancing the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. As a coalition of scientific societies, we communicate with policy makers and the public about the importance and contributions of basic and applied research in these sciences.
